Esports organisation Rix.GG releases their entire Rocket League roster

Published: Feb 2, 2021 - Last Updated: Sep 3, 2021

Only five months after entering the Rocket League competitive scene, English esports organisation Rix.GG has released their entire roster. The organisation seems to be pivoting away from the esports title entirely. They have dropped their three players and their coach and announced that they have no plans to re-enter the esport in the near future.

As of writing, only one player has re-signed with a new team. Polar has joined up with Stealth7 eSports for the upcoming fifth season of Nitro League, as one of the best players on their roster, he will be a good addition to the team and a wise choice for anyone looking to do some Rocket League betting. The remaining players, “MillenNiuM” Hettinger, Lorenzo “Dead-Monster” Tongiorgi, and Joonas “Mognus” Salo are all free agents.

The press release

Rix CEO and founder Jamie Lewis said:

“I’m extremely sad to be saying goodbye for now to Dan, Lorenzo, and Joonas. They have become a staple part of our community and have been as important off the server as on. I wish them the best of luck and hope we can cross paths professionally again soon.”

Rix’s Rocket League manager Ibrahim Taylor also added:

“This was a very tough decision to come to terms with, but sadly the team did not fit together and sometimes that is just what happens. All the players gave 110% to make it work but by the end, they all knew it was simply time to refresh things. Working with these individuals has been a pleasure, they will part ways with their heads held high and no bad feelings which fills me with pride. I am hopeful that our paths will cross again and wish them all the success in the world.”

The team’s performance

While this is still fairly surprising, it is not completely unexpected. The team had a promising start, in the beginning, they had some early qualifications for two Rocket League Championship Series events. Unfortunately, they could not keep up the pace and their professional career together ended with a 0-6 elimination in the group stage at The Field Season Six, not a good look for a team that began with some pretty good esports odds.

The future of Rocket League

Despite this unfortunate roster issue at Rix.GG, the Rocket League competitive scene is going from strength to strength. Like many other esports titles, they eventually pivoted to a free to play model and have continued to grow. The next major event in the Rocket League esports calendar is the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) X Winter Split. This will be one of the most popular Rocket League events, not just for the viewers, but also for anyone interested in esports betting.

The event will begin on February 5th and it will showcase some of the best players and teams from around the globe.

  • Oceanic Winter Major: 5 and 6
  • South American Winter Major: 13 and 14
  • European Winter Major: 20 and 21
  • North American Winter Major: 27 and 28

Psyonix have secured a major sponsor for the event, the Ford Motor Company. They are the presenting sponsor for the event and also plan to produce content for the game itself moving forward.

Finally, Psyonix just dropped their newest update for the title yesterday, February 1st. They have added new esports items to the in-game shop, as well as gameplay and graphical tweaks for lower end systems.
